Ordr, the leader in connected device security, today announced the release of new innovations and ecosystem integrations in version 8.2 of its AI-powered platform. Ordr enables customers to SEE, KNOW, and SECURE every connected device across their whole organization - from laptops and traditional IT equipment, to especially vulnerable Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), and Operational Technology (OT) devices. This release positions Ordr as the most comprehensive, granular, and accurate source of truth for every connected device.
Using Ordr version 8.2, customers will:
SEE a greater amount of connected devices and better understand device context through integrations with leading Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions Jamf and Microsoft Intune, Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) platform SentinelOne, network management platform Cisco DNA Center; and through enhancements to the Ordr Software Inventory Collector.
KNOW more about vulnerabilities and risks through integrations with leading EDR and threat intelligence platforms, including CrowdStrike and Qualys.
SECURE devices more rapidly through enhanced automation capabilities across the Zero Trust ecosystem, including integration advancements with Aruba ClearPass.
"Today's organizations must manage a tough balance between the demands of rapid digital transformation and the need to protect their businesses," said Pandian Gnanaprakasam, Chief Product Officer and co-founder of Ordr. "While digital transformation is an opportunity to fundamentally improve enterprise operations, the tradeoff is an expansion of the cyber attack surface and the demands of an increasingly strict regulatory regime. At Ordr, we understand that balance. Our platform helps customers embrace digital transformation without compromising security."
Ordr 8.2 gives customers a centralized view of the connected device attack surface, including vulnerabilities, risks, and active threats. As an open platform, Ordr takes pride in offering the largest number of security, networking, and IT solution integrations in the industry today, including bidirectional integrations. When combined with the Ordr Data Lake profiles, these integrations further Ordr with the most comprehensive and detailed context, flows, and insights on tens of millions of devices to mitigate risks and accelerate Zero Trust initiatives.
"The Ordr platform gives us invaluable insights that help accelerate our Zero Trust project with Aruba Clearpass," said Randy Yates, VP, Chief Information Security Officer, Memorial Hermann. "With Ordr, we're able to easily define granular policies based on device role and risk to ensure we can reduce our attack surface and improve security without fear of impacting operations."
Ordr makes it easy to secure every connected device, from traditional IT devices to newer and more vulnerable IoT, IoMT, and OT. Ordr Systems Control Engine uses deep packet inspection and advanced machine learning to discover every device, profile its risk and behavior, map all communications and protect it with automated policies. Organizations worldwide trust Ordr to provide real-time asset inventory, address risk and compliance and accelerate IT initiatives. Ordr is backed by top investors including Battery Ventures, Wing Venture Capital, Ten Eleven Ventures, Northgate Capital, Kaiser Permanente Ventures, and Unusual Ventures.

emnify, a leading cloud-native IoT cellular connectivity enabler, has recently announced a new technological and strategic partnership with Lynk, a renowned satellite IoT connectivity provider. The collaboration puts emnify at the forefront of an emerging IoT connectivity revolution, with satellite and terrestrial mobile communications systems combining into a unified ‘network of networks’ to achieve more accessible, resilient, and flexible connectivity solutions.
Through this collaboration, emnify will offer Lynk's ingenious ‘cell towers in space’ to its customers. To ensure consistent and dependable IoT connectivity, emnify customers can now connect their existing LTE or GSM cellular radio device to Lynk's satellite-based cell towers. The solution will be supported by Lynk's global technology and managed through emnify's proprietary web portal and APIs.
Lynk's satellite portfolio will broaden emnify's global coverage outside of terrestrial mobile networks and into international maritime waters with the deployment of three commercial low-Earth-orbit satellites by the end of 2023.
VP of Network Access at emnify, Alexander Schebler, says: "Use cases such as environmental monitoring, fish farming, smart metering, and asset tracking in offshore locations and international waters do not require frequent data transfer. However, the ability to establish connectivity without relying on mobile network reception is crucial for collecting meter readings, sensor values, or GPS locations of assets." He added, "This partnership marks the future of IoT connectivity, where satellite and terrestrial mobile communications systems work seamlessly together to provide more resilient, accessible, and flexible connectivity solutions. We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this IoT connectivity revolution and are eager to empower our customers to realize the full value of their device fleets through their existing Emnify Cloud infrastructure."
